Am 38+6 with my first and a bit confused at the moment as to some 'symptoms' I'm having - as usual, Google is a minefield of conflicting info!
For the past few days, my discharge has been really heavy and really watery - I don't think it's my waters, as it doesn't seem to smell noticeably sweet, as I have read, but I am now wearing a pad all the time. A couple of days ago, there was also a very small streak of blood in my discharge, but since then nothing else!
I'm having no particular pains (except for the usual aches!) So haven't phoned the midwife or hospital yet, should I just hang tight and wait for contractions or more definite symptoms?
Definitely speak to your midwife as bear says you can have a slow leak... Don't forget to take the pads you've been wearing or at least one so that they can be tested for amniotic fluid x good luck x you've not got long really xx
I agree. I would ring them and ask for advice at least.
I had no pain but constant feeling of wetness and needing to wee with my first. Turned out my waters were trickling. By the time he came at 40+11 he was quite distressed and had passed meconium inside me. I don't know that the two were related but it's worth getting checked I think.
